Created at the instigation of “La Compagnie du Fil”, UNIMA Burkina Faso is going through a questioning of the evolution of the practice of puppetry in the country. Despite financial difficulties, UNIMA Burkina Faso continues to welcome new members, to be consulted and to follow the structures engaged in the development of the puppetry arts in Africa.
